This issue has been solved. See solution.


I plan to configure EV File System Archiving for my NetApp storage. I have several CIFs shares that are accessible by both Windows and Mac users. If I set an archiving policy against files on the NetApp will my Mac users still be able to recall the files by opening the placeholder?

many thanks

MAC as client for FSA is not supported by EV

“File System Archiving (FSA) interoperability with Apple Macintosh Systems”

However you can contact Symantec partner Goup Logic for their utility ArchiveConnect which allows to interact with FSA from MAC client.

You can also look at supported OS as client access for FSA in latest compatibility guide (similar information supplied in other post by Gabe for linux support)
